I was wondering if it's possible to tweak system properties in Win Xp so that it doesn't show the real characteristics but fake ones instead.
I mean processor speed and the amount of RAM. I was looking for the answer on Google but I couldn't find anything useuful.

No particular reason, but don't worry, I don't plan to suck in anyone. I have already placed the OEM logo and was thinking it would be cool to do this too. I know my life doesn't depend on this but if anyone is willing to help I would be grateful

for a while, my laptop had a
Cyberdyne Systems Corp, t800 neural CPU

there are a few things you can change here, but only the string values--the rest is generated dynamically when windows builds info passed from bios

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor]

Ok, I've managed to change the processor name but changing the speed value doesn't seem to have an effect. Thanks for the info.
